Endorsement Courses

Endorsement course frameworks are developed by qualified faculty at Southern Utah University, observing state of Utah requirements. School districts seeking to offer these courses must use and closely adhere to SUU syllabi and content. SUU credit is conferred only under these conditions. Participants use the credit as recorded on the transcript to apply for the endorsement from the Utah State office of education.
